Michaela's Book List!

Wesley Interns


Sharing a book with someone is a view into their heart. It is a vulnerable act between friends.

-Michaela Drain, UCO Wesley Director

The current UCO Wesley Director, Michaela Drain, loves to read! You will always find her with a book on her somewhere. Her favorite thing to do is swap book suggestions. Below are some of the books she most often suggests to church leaders and students alike. Once you read them, Michaela would love to discuss them with you. Feel free to stop by the Wesley with a book to discuss or suggest!
